Description

The Fiji Shelter Handbook developed through intensive research and sector/community consultation, aims to increase knowledge of disaster resilient construction techniques and methodologies, and safer shelter practice. It also aims to build the capacity of responding stakeholders to deliver better coordinated, more efficient and safer disaster response and recovery construction in Fiji. The handbook holistically supports the shelter sector’s preparedness for and response to disasters such as cyclones, floods, droughts, earthquakes and tsunamis. The handbook has been primarily designed to support local and international responders delivering national level emergency shelter response programs, specifically the stakeholders participating in Fiji’s Shelter Cluster. The production of this handbook was financially supported by the Australian Humanitarian Partnership (AHP) Disaster READY program.
